This reply came from Mel Smyre <email@example.com>. The Twin Cities Army Ammunition Plant (Arden Hills, Minnesota) does considerable off-site sampling, in large part because of TCE contamination of deep and shallow aquifers. The deep aquifer plume extends about 6 miles form the base and is currently used, after carbon filtration, as a water sources for 3 communities. This system requires continual monitoring. In addition, a small off-site lake, Round Lake, was contaminated with metals from plant waste runoff. The lake, now controlled by U.S. Fish and Wildlife as a refuge, is currently the subject of a Tier 2 eco-risk assessment. Sampling has taken place at the lake, which is nearby but not adjacent to the Ammunition Plant.
